Jr Drag Racing Series
05/18/2018 @ 2:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Bring the whole family out to watch the kids racing the 1/8 mile on the Young Kia Drag Strip.
These racers are the future of the sport, ranging in age from 5-18 years old. The kids compete in their Junior Dragster race cars or full size street legal vehicles for the some of the older kids.
Each of these kids have to go through a NHRA licensing procedure to prove they have the knowledge and understanding to handle the track and car.
Jr. Dragsters have 4 classes in which they can compete, depending on their age. Each class will run an 1/8 mile track.
Beginner (Age 6-7) This is the youngest class of racers on the Drag Strip. They are allowed to run 13.90 seconds in the 1/8 mile.
Rookie (Age 8-9) These kids are allowed to run 11.90 seconds in the 1/8 mile.
Minor (Age 10-12) The ability to run 8.90 seconds in the 1/8 mile.
Major (Age 13-18) These kids can run the 1/8 mile in 7.90 seconds.
*There is also a Trainee classification for those who are 5 years old and want to get some experience in the race car. They will not be allowed to race or compete with another driver, they will always be on track alone.
The Jr. Street class is the newest youth program for those ages 13-16 year old. They compete in a street legal vehicle with an adult in the passenger seat.
